I love all sorts of music really, it all depends on what mood I'm in as to what I listen to or play.
I have to say though, my first love was folk music (back in the days of six-part trad harmonies and fingers in the ears!) and I adore celtic rock, particularly the scottish bands, like Capercaille and Wolfstone.
But if I had to choose a favourite band and/or performer I couldn't!
umm i like any kind of music although i have to say im not exactly keen on really heavy metal or techno dance music but everyone is different lol my style is kind of indie pop rock ish lol
at the moment im kind of into the kooks, jack johnson,kelly clarkson,artic monkeys snow patrol etc etc
i like a band because of there songs and not wat they look like lol
so most of the time i just like songs and not really bands lol
( the bands i mentioned are mostly english so not many of u have probably heard of them)
I would have to say classical period music, I remember listening to it as a kid and it never gets old, or any major instrumental works using orchestral, there is so much potential with that, so many instruments to draw on, it never gets old. I listen to a lot of rock and metal, but I can still relate things straight back to classical period works and instrumental.
rap isn't all terrible, you've just got to find an artist who's raps about real things,for instance i love just a moment by nas and ther are many others, but a lot of "grime" drives me crazy, and also rappers that rap and promote things like drugs, pimping, prostitution etc. Anyway, I like most music, there's never a whole genre that I dislike, usually just songs within a genre but I can always find a few songs in each genre that I do like. Pop is often corny though. Still, my favourite genres have to be soul and R'n'B simply because I'm a soul/R'n'B singer plus I write songs in those genres and I love to dance and choreograph to those genres. However there are other genres I love, for instance I love to play jazz and blues on my clarinet, and I'll play just about anything on the piano anyway I'm writing an essay now so I'll stop but before I do, I want to say never completely disregard a genre of music just because you've songs which are of that genre which you dislike, I used to do that with rock but there is rock music that I found I like. Be open-minded and those of you that said you dislike rap, give it another chance
ooo I lied, there is one genre I hate, although it's not really a genre, it's a sub-genre (I think), anyway it's music composed in a serialist style, you know using tone rows and inversion and retrograde and all that, I have to study it for my GCSE and I really hate it, it's often awfully disonant, and I love pieces with beautiful harmony so serialism is not my cup of tea so to speak.
